"The ongoing effects of gentrification in this city are heartbreaking — waves of displacement, growing violence, and intensifying poverty," the post reads, later adding, "We have zero tears to shed for Locke Street."

Two weeks ago there were duelling protests in the neighbourhood sparked by the events.

One was billed as a "Patriot Walk on Locke" and included far-right groups and appeared to include anti-immigration groups such as Soldiers of Odin, The Proud Boys and the Ontario Northern Guard. This sparked a counterprotest by Hamiltonians Against Fascism.

Hamilton police worked to keep the groups separate and no one was hurt or arrested.
